A short stint in Chennai under Hans Kaushik, and then under Padma Rajagopal in Studio Alpha near Mysore, made her realize that she had indeed found her calling in clay.
Meet Kaveri Bharath, Potter, Artisan, Educator
Growing up with a creative and supportive family, Kaveri found her way very naturally into clay around 1995, and has remained with it, since…
Gas kiln built for SPASTN, in 2003
Kaveri has built kilns and set up Ceramic Centres for other organizations and also shown her own work in a few group shows.
Golden Bridge Pottery
Kaveri had a total immersion in claywork in 1996 and 1997 learning pottery under Ray Meeker at the Golden Bridge Pottery, (GBP), in Pondicherry, India, where she got her basics and a strong foundation in wheel thrown pottery, and woodfired kilns.

India's first Crowdfunded kiln. The Woodfired Soda Kiln at Pothole at the Farm
In March 2014 Kaveri launched her own 45 day long, crowdfunding campaign to realize her dream of having a wood fired Soda Kiln.
The campaign on the Wishberry platform succeeded, and she now has India’s first, and (as yet), only Crowdfunded Kiln, at her Pothole at The Farm.
Starting of my own studio, Studio Mannangatti, 1999
Kaveri slowly set up her own small, one room studio in the city over the next several years.
Kaveri’s unique pottery pour over are very popular now.
